Summary

The only one in the series worth playing, is also one of the GameBoy's best.

The Good

Final Fantasy Legend III is an impressive Gameboy RPG that is not a Final Fantasy game. Confused? That’s okay we all are. FFLIII is actually a spin off to Square’s Romancing Saga games, it was named after Final Fantasy because, at the time no one in the USA had heard of the Saga games.

In FFLIII, you play warriors whom must travel back in time to stop an evil entity from destroying your world. Unlike the other Saga err Legend games you play a pre-made party instead of making your own. The story is convincing enough to keep you playing. The gameplay involves all the typical RPG gameplay, but being a Gameboy game it is some what more impressive.

The Sound/ Music is solid. The music and effects are all good, which is something of an achievement for a Gameboy cart.

The Bad

In the Negative would have to be the ridiculous amount of random battles. (This may not be a true Final Fantasy game but it acts like one.) The game also involves excessive level building.

The Bottom Line

This is a lengthy quest around 30 hours, with good graphics music, and decent gameplay all on one Gameboy Cartridge! Pocket Gamers should check this one out.
